    Mitch Epstein's latest project takes on one of the most loaded issues on the nation's agenda: what & who powers America? From 2003-2008, prompted by the evacuation of an environmentally compromised Ohio town, the photographer travelledthe country documenting energy 'hot spots,' where fossil fuel, nuclear, hydroelectric, wind and solar power are produced, encountering further contaminations, Homeland (in)Security obstacles, corporate invincibility and the occasional token of hope in a post-Katrina and post-Patriot Act America. The angle of engagment permitted Epstein often varied, so that many of the power plants & refineries were shot at enforced distances. An altogether compelling portrait. Color.
  • Arnold Newman: The Early Work

    By Arnold Newman

    Our Price: $35.00
    • Format: Oversize Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9783865213617
    • Publisher: STEIDL
    • Published: July 2007
    The photographs collected here - 100 tritones - were made before Arnold Newman achieved recognition as a pioneering portraitist, during his formative years from 1938-1942. Discovered in 1941 by Beaumont Newhall and Alfred Stieglitz, Newman's work can be seen to evolve and articulate the approach for which the photographer is best known, what came to be recognized as 'environmental portraiture.' So widely is its influence today, that it serves as the 'new standard' practice of diverse approaches to the medium. Illus., 100 balck-and-white photographs. 232p.

    This volume presents Bruce Davidson's personal selections from his lesser-known color archive. Ranging from a period of fifty-six years and counting, these images are representative of the photographer's color career. Assignments from various magazines (Vogue, National Geographic, Life magazine) and commercial projects led him to photograph fashion (early 1960s), the Shah of Iran with his family (1964), keepers of French monuments (1988), the supermodel Kylie Bax (1997), and college cheerleaders (1989). He photographed in India and China, but also at home in New York, in Chicago, and along the Pacific Coast Highway. In 1968, Michelangelo Antonioni invited him to document the making of his film Zabriskie Point. Davidson also continued to pursue personal projects, e.g. photographing the Yiddish writer and Nobel Prize laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer (1972-75), the New York City subway (1980), and Katz's Delicatessen (2004). Often staying on in a country after an official assignment, he documented Welsh coalfields, family holidays in Martha's Vineyard, and travelled through Patagonia and Mexico.

  • Collected Works (5 Volumes)

    By Gordon Parks

    "These images and words are a gathering of individuals, events, places, conflicts and dilemmas that confronted me asI shifted from course to course in pursuit of survival. Some star-coloured, others, painted with rage, fall like rain in my memory. They all simmer down to what I remember, forgot, and what at last I know." Gordon Parks This five-volume collection surveys five decades of Gordon Parks' photography. It is the most extensive publication to document his legendary career. Widely recognized as the most important and influential African-American photo grapher of the twentieth century, Parks combined a unique documentary and artistic style with a profound commitment to social justice. Working first for the Farm Security Administration and later for Life magazine, he specialized in extended narrative picture stories on difficult subject matter. Covering crime, poverty, segregation, the politics of race and class,and controversial personalities, Parks became legendary for his ability to meld penetrating insight with a lyrical aesthetic. He was thus able to introduce a broad and diverse public to people, issues and ideas they might otherwise have ignored. Parks was remarkably versatile, travelling the world to photograph news events and fashion, as well as the worlds of art, literature, music, theatre and film. Later in life, he reconceived his vision in fundamentally personal and poetic terms, producing colour photographs that were allusive rather than descriptive, symbolic rather than literal.

    In November of 1991 Robert Frank went to Beirut on a commission to photograph the city's devastated downtown in the aftermath of the Lebanese civil war (1975-1990). Much of the work he did there, together with that of five other photographers with whom he shared the assignment, was put together in 'Beirut City Centre' (2006). Alongside that work, he also made Polaroids of the city & its environs, which, on his return home, he set aside. Years later, Frank again worked with these images, using them to create a sketch-book's worth of collages, realizing this facsimile reprint of that notebook: a sewn softcover in a paper bag w/special 4-color matt inks & a Polaroid varnish. Illus., quadrotones. 44p.

    Robert Adams began by photographing suburban landscapes along the edge of the Rocky Mountains. His goal was then, and remainds, to acknowledge the disappearance of wilderness but also to discover a basis for affirmation. In the 1980s he went on to revisit semi-rural areas through which he had walked as a boy - landscapes no longer pristine but still notable for their quiet, space and light. The views in this book, none published before, record some of what he found compelling, the equivalent of traces of memory struck into photographic images. Illus., 118 tritone. 128p.

    American street photographer Leon Levinstein is much admired within the photographic community, but little known outside of it. Solo exhibitions at the National Gallery of Canada in 1995 and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2010 brought him to the attention of many, but his dynamic and original work is yet to achieve the recognition it deserves. Levinstein's fearless and unsentimental black and white images, whether shot in New York City, Coney Island, Haiti, Mexico or India, possess in Metropolitan Museum of Art Curator of Photographs Jeff Rosenheim's words, "graphic virtuosity - seen in raw, expressive gestures and seemingly monumental bodies - balanced by an unusual compassion for his off-beat subjects". In 1975, at the age of 65, Levinstein received a grant from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation. His intention, in his own words, was to photograph "as wide a spectrum of the American scene as my experience and vision will allow". This long-awaited book fulfils this ambitious goal.

    In the early 1970s, the workers at a steel smelting factory east of Havana wrote to Fidel Castro describing their housing needs. Out of this exchange a new city called Alamar was born, conceived by the same workers who would build it and live there. Today it is abandoned; Mauro D'Agati's photographs examine its eccentric spaces.
